Alcohol-specific deaths – last 10 years
In England in 2018, there were 5,698 alcohol-specific deaths which is 2% lower than 2017 and an increase of 7% on 2008.
Note: a further 1,920 deaths were also due to unspecified hepatitis and fibrosis and cirrhosis of the liver. These deaths are not included in the alcohol-specific charts because they are defined as only being partially attributable to alcohol. See annex A for more details.
